Following an exciting opening night, additional prospects will be drafted by the Cleveland Browns early and often on Friday.
The Cleveland Browns will once again be the center of attention during the second day as the draft goes through rounds two and three. Coming into the 2018 NFL Draft, the Browns had nine draft picks at their disposal.
Having used two already on QB Baker Mayfield and CB Denzel Ward at one and four respectively, Cleveland is on the verge of obtaining a great draft class. With seven left, Cleveland’s roster should certainly fill and/or upgrade additional key positions as the draft continues.
Cleveland will kickoff the drafting for day two. They have picks 33, 35, and 64, which are all in the second round. At the moment they don’t have a third because they dealt their pick to the Buffalo Bills in return for QB Tyrod Taylor.

Looking ahead, there are great values available. A number of them would fit in well with the Browns as day two draft picks.
Royce Freeman, Oregon – 947 carries over four seasons in college may be concerning but in a system where he would form a one-two punch with Carlos Hyde, Freeman’s workload won’t impact what he does in the pros.
Wide receiver: Courtland Sutton, SMU – Either as an X or a Z or both on offense, Sutton could be a difference-maker for Cleveland as he makes plays on the outside. Simultaneously, more plays would then open up for Jarvis Landry and Josh Gordon.
Christian Kirk, Texas A&M – Getting the football in space regularly will help the Browns and Kirk is someone who can help with that. Whether on the outside running a go-route or inside running out-routes, Kirk simply makes plays. Kirk’s ability to be a kick and punt returner also is a positive in his value.
Offensive tackle: Connor Williams (Texas)/Tyrell Crosby (Oregon)/Chukwuma Okorafor (Western Michigan) – All three have plenty of potential. If the rankings are similar maybe Cleveland waits to select an offensive tackle. We will know soon enough.
Sam Hubbard, Ohio State – Hubbard has the size, strength, and speed to be versatile enough for Cleveland to move him around from all over the football field.
With three picks on Friday along with the possibility of a trade, most of Cleveland’ needs will be filled by the end of the night. If day two is anything like the first round was, the Browns draft impact will continue to impress.
